Stoke v Arsenal Betting preview – Gunners very short favourites

If you’re planning to win some quick cash and you are an Arsenal fan, than the most likely chance to do so is in the game against Stoke City. With the motivation is at a high in Arsenal’s camp, the bookies seem to think that they will have an easy game against Stoke.

A quick look at the live betting sites shows that a bet on Arsenal to win the game will only bring you an 1.83 odd of winning, while Stoke is credited with a 4.33 odd.

Don’t get fooled by the fact that Arsenal need the points in order to keep Tottenham at a safe distance, the injury situation at the club will surely take it’s toll on the game.

Arsenal will have to be without the usual long-term injuries to Wilshere and Mertesacker, but joining them in the stands will be winger Theo Walcott and playmaker Mikel Arteta. The Spaniard will most likely be substituted by Yossi Benayoun who is back after being inelgible to play against Chelsea, while Wenger will probably choose to play with Gervinho and Chamberlain on the wings.

If you think that Robin will improve on his goal scoring total and place a bet on it you’ll earn a 1.73 odd, which is also a bit low considering he has only scored once in the last six games, while another goal from the young Oxlade-Chamberlain is rated with a 3.75 odd.

On paper Arsenal are the favorites, but will they really have it that easy?
